Granada Preschool was founded in 1963 by Margaret Mitchell. She was a visionary
in the field of early childhood education. Many of the ideas she championed
in the early '60s have come to be established principles in the field:
the value of play in developing social skills and kindergarten readiness,
a balance between academic and center based philosophies and the concept
of the outdoor classroom. In 2013 we celebrated our 50th anniversary.
We are proud of our past and look forward to continuing to provide a quality
preschool experience in the years to come.
The Clubhouse, our program for school age children, was founded in 1982
in response to requests from parents. They wanted a program for older
children that would continue the quality experience their child had received
at Granada Preschool. Between Granada Preschool and The Clubhouse we offer
care for children between the ages of 2 and 14.
Our hats are off to all of those who still unscrew their Oreos,
Who'd rather giggle than outright laugh,
Who always favor the biggest half,
Who can't see walking when they can run,
Who roll in the snow and dance in the sun.
To those whose eyes are clear and bright,
Who'd rather not venture where it's not very light,
Who love their peanut butter gooey,
Their white bread soft,
Their bubble gum chewy.
Who marvel at all that a grown-up knows,
Whose hugs can warm us from our head to our toes.
